Around Zhongshan Station are a number of major department stores, and there are also many boutiques and cafés in the surrounding neighborhood. Many can be found along Chifeng Street between Zhonghan and Shuanglian stations, including:
Bomb Metal & Fry Jewelry
This shop, focused on contemporary metal smithing and design, was founded by two friends who’d been classmates six years and colleagues eight, their goal is to show the beauty and variety of metalworking through hand-crafted home furnishings, jewelry, and other items, and bring more artistry into people’s everyday lives.
